Super nice family owned hotel
we had a great time in arugam bay there at the bay vista hotel - the view from our balcony was great. We would like to recommend the rooftop bar! Good and healthy drinks and food served by a very nice swedes couple.

Amazing stay for families
We stayed for 9 night is this great hotel. The hotel is set right on the beach, with a lovely garden between the beach and the building, and it's filled with comfy chairs, hammocks and sunbeds. . We stayed the first night in a room with sea view on the ground floor, it was lovely to be able to walk directly out into the garden. However we were very happy to move into a three times larger room with land view on the second floor for the next 8 days. I guess it is up to each person's preferences but as we spent the whole day out, we did not feel the need to see the Indian Ocean from our room, we saw it as soon as we walked down for breakfast. The room was great, spacious enough for 4 people, and had both fan and aircon, balcony and a good enough bathroom. Towels were changed, the beds were made and the floor swept daily. Breakfast was great, a little buffet of fruits, pancakes, curd, bread, sausages etc and eggs cooked by the lovely chef, in the restaurant. The restaurant staff was lovely too, so we're the other workers in the hotel. The hotel has a very family oriented feeling about it and my kids of 4 & 7 were treated amazingly well, and they both felt so at home that they sometimes went down for breakfast alone without waking up their parents. The beach just outside of the hotel is filled with the fishermens boats, but there is plenty of room enough to go for a swim in the waves in the ocean. A short walk on the beach leads you to the surf points, baby point and main point. The restaurant is really great and has very good value for money. We ate there almost every day as the food was great and the setting amazing. In the evening you can eat in the garden also, then the whole place is lit up by beautiful lights decorations. If I need wish for any improvements at all it would be to have some more variety to the fish selection in the restaurant! 😊 We loved Sri Lanka and Arugam Bay in particular so much that we will be going back next year. We will definitel

Highly Recommended
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Vista. Bedroom was simple but effective. WiFi was a bit rubbish which was our only complaint but who needs WiFi when you're in Arugam Bay! Staff were exceptionally kind, friendly and helpful and the food was very good too! Definitely a worthwhile location in Arugam Bay!

Good Value Hotel, Right on the Beachfront
Off-season rates make this hotel good value. Very modern and clean with well-appointed rooms, a good kitchen and a perfect, beachfront location

Bad beds, location and cleanliness good.
Location, cleanliness and food were ok.
The owner was nice and helpful. The place was very clean which is a bonus in this part of Sri Lanka. The down side for me was the mattress being terrible and the fact they have no bar leaves a very big entertaining space with music and no one in it whilst all up and down the beach have places which are packed. Some small changes could make this place great and worth the money but currently it's only an ok from me.
